The opening of the Nintendo park again postponed due to the pandemic

Super Mario's entry into the world of theme parks will have to wait: the opening of the Nintendo space at Universal Studios Japan (USJ) has been postponed again while Japan suffers its third wave of Covid-19 infections.

 

The much-anticipated Super Nintendo World was originally scheduled to be launched in the huge amusement park in Osaka (west) last July to coincide with the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.

 

After the postponement of the Olympics by one year due to the pandemic, the opening of the park was then set for February 4th. But the state of emergency in force in Greater Tokyo since last week was extended Wednesday to seven other departments, including Osaka.

 

Apologizing to fans, USJ said Thursday that a new date would be announced after the end of the state of emergency, currently scheduled to run until Feb. 7.

 

In addition to a Mario Kart roller coaster, the Nintendo area of the USJ park is expected to offer visitors a ride inspired by the friendly green Yoshi dinosaur or interactive attractions where visitors will be able to hit blocks to win coins.
